GUEST,Pete Peterson UK Old Time music festival, February '07 (92* d) RE: UK Old Time music festival, February '07 19 Dec 06

The Orpheus Supertones do a whole lot of singing, from lots of sources. Remember that our source musicians (Charlie Poole, the Skillet Lickers, the Shelor Family, Uncle Dave Macon, the Carter Family) thought of themselves as entertainers first and instrumentalists only a distant second.

There's the other side of us, too-- find somebody like Ed Haley or Clark Kessinger or "Jilson Setters" who DID think of himself mainly as a fiddler, transcribe those tunes carefully and then see if they fit into a string band setting.

We are really looking forward to Gainsborough!
